Abstract
In the face of demographic ageing European healthcare providers and policy makers are recognising an increasing prevalence of frail, community-dwelling older adults, prone to adverse healthcare outcomes. Prefrailty, before onset of functional decline, is suggested to be reversible but interventions targeting this risk syndrome are limited. No consensus on the definition, diagnosis or management of pre-frailty exists. The PERsonalised ICT Supported Service for Independent Living and Active Ageing (PERSSILAA) project (2013-2016 under Framework Programme 7, grant #610359) developed a comprehensive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) supported platform to screen, assess, manage and monitor pre-frail community-dwelling older adults in order to address pre-frailty and promote active and healthy ageing. PERSSILAA, a multi-domain ICT service, targets three pre-frailty: nutrition, cognition and physical function. The project produced 42 recommendations across clinical (screening, monitoring and managing of pre-frail older adults) technical (ICT-based innovations) and societal (health literacy in older adults, guidance to healthcare professional, patients, caregivers and policy makers) areas. This paper describes the 25 healthcare related recommendations of PERSSILAA, exploring how they could be used in the development of future European guidelines on the screening and prevention of frailty.
